Have you run OpenOffice sfs with DCL? I seem not to succeed doing that. Smile

I used the pet packages available in the manager. Accually I got openoffice_cutdown3-2.2.0.pet and openoffice_mozilla-2.2.0.pet from ibiblio.org, I could make a DCL 2008 Open Office Edition if you would like.

I downloaded DCL and changed the font sizes and installed the Nvidia driver. I really like it so far. A very nice implementation of XFCE.
How about DCL= Damn Cool Linux.

Hi Brandon

VERY IMPRESSIVE - just fired up DCL and like it lots and my initial thoughts were, this is a Damn Cool Linux and that was before I read above post's - so for me at least -
DCL = Damn Cool Linux.

Still finding my way around - so for the moment

Best regards and many thanks for a very nicely presented 3.01 based DCLpuppy.

Unintended consequences?! A tiny number of other versions/distros can do it, but not many. Installed DCL in an overweight SiS machine on an IDE line with 80w cable, too much memory, nV card and a massively clocked Athlon. Swapped the drive to a clapped out, clocked 370Celery with 128Mb, onboard video, VIA chipset and a 40w cable. Instant GUI boot up without any editing!

Successful re-detection of HW saves me huge amounts of time with test rigs. Most distros panic or crash.

Nice one.

Huh! Just one little glitch. My Logitech mouse has turned into a ~1cmx1cm white square with two thin vertical black lines. It works if I use the top lhs to point, I don't know how to change the mouse image in Xfce??

Behave yourself ! Brandon might be looking for a similar mouse to yours to seek a resolution to your problem...

Remember miracles we do the impossible takes a little longer.

On the subject of a little longer can anyone confirm the suspicion that the Talking Stick has been put on the fire. I am suffering eye strain looking for it

Keep your chin up

I'm happy to hear everyone likes DCL. I have decided to make the name just DCL because its simple. I'm not sure about the mouse at this point, as far as I know it uses the default X mouse. But I will keep trying.

Oh and Its a good thing I use CoBlitz, before it my server was using 3GB of bandwidth a day. Now its down to about 350MB

Brandon,

This is a beautiful and elegant-looking version of Puppy. Despite this, part of me wants a picture of a dead cow on the desktop. Does this make me a bad person? How do you change the wallpaper in XFCE anyway?

What was your previous pup? It's not mentioned on your website.

I think I'm going to have to pick seven Puppies and have a rota for each day of the week. It's not that long ago we only had the option of Barry's latest creation or Meanpup.

Thanks

drongo

Very Happy

XFCE Wallpaper can be change by clicking the "Start" button-Settings-Desktop Settings. Or typing xfce-setting-show backdrop into the terminal. My previous pup was BCSP, which is pretty similar but not put together as well.

I downloaded DCL yesterday and finally got a chance to fire it up. I really like what I'm seeing. I had been pretty much content with NOP 3.01 until now. I'm running it on my Toshiba laptop right now while posting this.

As for doing anything serious with DCL 2008, does using it as an everyday OS on both my laptop and one of my desktops count?

I'll play around with DCL for a little while tonight and see if I want to replace my full hard drive install of NOP 3.01 with DCL. I'm pretty sure I'll do a full install on one of the partitions on my multi boot LINUX desktop.

I totally agree with drongo's comment about DCL being an elegant-looking version of Puppy. About the only change I'll probably make real quick is a second panel at the top of the screen.

DCL has most of my favored apps like Abiword, Firefox, NVU, and of course the whole XFCE arsenal. I'll add Gnumeric, HomeBank, Xnview, and PetBeGone, then remove just a couple apps I won't use. All in all, it looks like DCL is about as close to what I'd master for myself as any of the other puplets I've tried.

Keep up the great work! Really nice job.
